Resurgent Johanna Konta expecting further improvement at Roland Garros

British number one Johanna Konta is confident going into the French Open after rubbishing suggestions she is uncomfortable on clay.

Konta shrugged off a poor 2018 to make big strides this season, and reached the final of the Italian Open last week.

Despite losing that to Petra Kvitova, Konta says she has every reason to expect continued improvement in Paris.

“I won a lot of my first junior titles, first professional titles on clay,” she told reporters.

“I think the work that I’m doing right now, in general, I think translates onto all surfaces.”

“There’s a lot of things that go into finding good form or finding good rhythm and just being able to build on it,” she told press at Rome.

“I think most importantly I’ve really committed to the work that I’m doing with my team right now.

“I really believe in it. So every day I show up to work, I show up. I really enjoy the work that I’m doing.

“I’m there, and therefore I feel like every day I’m able to just keep adding and keep building.”

“There’s no days that I can remember since pre-season where I haven’t grown in some way or haven’t been able to add something in some way.”
